Please join us on April 22nd from 6-8 pm for Here, There and Everywhere, an exhibition of works by artist Richard Roney-Dougal. The show will be on view from April 20-May 6.
Richard Roney-Dougal is many things—an accomplished goldsmith, a painter, a printmaker, a sculptor—in other words, an artist. Although he has been primarily designing and making jewelry for the last 35 years, he has never strayed too far from the canvas, the etching plate, or the page. His engravings show both his mastery of the form and his vivid imagination where a love of archaeology and astronomy took root long ago. He uses delicately etched lines to build densely detailed, fantastical images. Some of Richard's earliest work was done sketching back stage at the ballet with associates of his uncle Guy Sheppard who was the original designer for the Ballet Rambert, and who also worked with Diaghilev and the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo.
Richard Roney-Dougal earned his MA of Art and Design at the Central School in London, apprenticed as a goldsmith in Amsterdam, and worked in Australia before settling in New Mexico in 1987, where he and his wife, Roz, set up their studio, Roney-Dougal Jewelry. In 2008 they moved to Paris, Kentucky and started White Horse Gallery, which focused on equestrian-themed art. A show of his new work was held at the Headley-Whitney Museum in Lexington in 2011. They moved to Sharon, Connecticut in 2016.
